On this Rhön circular trail, shortly after the start at the Holzberghof hiking car park, we reach the restaurant of the same name. Due to its two towers, the former hunting lodge is a popular photo motif for hikers in the Rhön.

Shortly thereafter, the ascent to the Heidelstein begins, which can also be easily found in the panorama of the Rhön with its transmission mast. On the open landscape at 926 meters above sea level, the view opens up over wide areas of the Rhön and, if visibility is good, beyond.

From here it goes downhill in a straight line in the direction of the Red Moor. Shortly before the NABU house and the plank path, however, this circular route turns off so that this is not approached directly. You then return to the starting point of the circular hike via the Münzkopf.

Author’s recommendation

A trip to the Rote Moor should not be missed.

Safety information

The tourist paths of the Rhön are mostly used by other active people (hikers, mountain bikers, cyclists, walkers, horse riders, cross-country skiers, etc.).

We ask all active nature sports enthusiasts to show consideration for one another. Of course, the same applies to nature - it is worth protecting. In the Rhön, nature sports should therefore only be practiced in daylight on designated paths and areas.
